Contact your internet service provider for that issue. Reformatting the computer affected your internet configuration and you service provider needs to reconfigure the computer so you can browse the web again.

Coby Kyros MD1042 will not connect to Internet


I hate to be rude but WEP was broken several years ago. Use WPA or WPA2 or (best of all) a wired connection.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for your router and the latest drivers for your network card on the PC/laptop or console.

How do I make my iPod Touch Connect to an Unsecure Network


<p>Unsecured wireless Internet networks are available in many cafes and public spaces. An unsecured network is a wireless Internet connection that does not require a password. Use your iPod Touch Wi-Fi capability to connect to these networks and the Internet. Although excellent for surfing and email, avoid carrying out banking or financial information into an unsecured network, because there is a possibility that the signal is intercepted. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open the Settings menu of your iPod Touch. It is the gray gear icon on the home screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Tap "WiFi" and move it to "On" if needed. If your Wi-Fi is already activated, you will see a pop-up asking if you have the unsecured network. Some companies, like Starbucks, have a "Log In" screen appears automatically. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click "Yes" or "Join" for the network to automatically connect when prompted. The text may vary depending on the company, and you may need to read and agree to the terms and conditions statement. If no login screen appears, wait until you play for scanning available Wi-Fi signals. The list is displayed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select the network name you want to join the list. An unsecured network has a password, so you will not be asked to give. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click on "automatic network in the future" when asked if you want to do. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Wait until the light of the Wi-Fi indicator in the upper left corner of the touch. This indicates that you are online and ready to ride. <br />

Installed Trendnet wireless adapter. Connection shows excellent but can't browse internet


The "excellent" is the signal-strength between your wireless adapter
and your wireless router.
You still need to select the SSID ("network name") that you configured into the router, and enter the password for your network, before you can connect to the Internet.
Compare it to having a brand-new mobile telephone. Until you dial a friend's number, and the friend answers, all you have is an "excellent" telephone.

To use Remote Install Mac OS X: 1. Insert the Mac OS X Install Disc 1 into the optical disc drive of the other computer. 2 .If the other computer is a Mac, open /Applications/Utilities/Remote Install Mac OS X. On Windows, choose "Remote Install Mac OS X" from the Install Assistant. 3. Read the introduction and click Continue. 4 .Choose the install disc you want to use, and click Continue. 5. Choose a network connection: AirPort, if you are using an AirPort network, or Ethernet, if the other computer is on an Ethernet network and you have an optional Apple USB Ethernet Adapter connecting your MacBook Air to the same network. Click Continue. 6 .Restart your MacBook Air and hold down the Option key as it starts up, until you see a list of available startup disks. 8. If you chose AirPort as your network in step 5, on your MacBook Air choose your AirPort network from the pop-up list. If the network is secure, you are prompted for a password. You can enter a private network name by choosing the ellipsis (...) and typing the name. 9.

Hi Taylortowers, your wireless networks security key may be incorrect. from a wired connection go to the routers main menu (instructions).

Macbook and wireless n setup how do you set it up????!!!!!


Can you clarify the problem for me:

1. Mac Type = Macbook
2. Operating System = Mac OS ?
3. What are you trying to connect to?

For example are you trying to set up a Wireless Home network, meaning that iPhones, iPods or other macs can share the one Internet Connection. This is called a Computer-to-Computer Network.

OR are you trying to configure a Wireless Modem to work with your MacBook?

Setting up a Computer-to-Computer Network is done by:

1. Select System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
2. Select Network from the Internet & Wireless section.
3. Select Airport from the list of devices.
4. Click the Turn Airport On button, located next to Status. NOTE: If it is already turned on then this button will read Turn Airport Off.
5. Select Create Network from the drop down menu adjacent Network Name.
6. Type in the preferred name that you wish to call your network in the Name field. (ie., MacBookHomeNetwork or something)
7. Select the Channel (Channel 11) is an OK one to select.
8. Choose whether you want the user to type in a password to gain access to your network. (This is recommended.) If you do, then click the check box beside Require Password.
8.1 Type in the Password into the Password field.
8.2 Type the Password again into the Verify field.
8.3 Select the type of encryption you want to use, 40bit or 128bit.
9. Click the Show Airport status in Menu Bar check box.

NOTE: If you require advanced settings, then click the Advanced ... button.

10. Apply and then go back to the System Preferences window (using the Left Arrow located top/left of window). If you get stuck, get back using Instruction No.1 above.)
11. Click the Sharing Icon in the Internet & Wireless section.
12. Select from the list each item you wish to share (i.e, File, Printer, Bluetooth, Internet, DVD or CD etc...).

NOW : From your other device, you need to locate the new Wireless Network Connection.

If it is an iPhone or iPod then go to the Settings menu and select Wi-Fi from the list. The new network should be picked up automatically. Log in to it (if you set up passwords).

I hope this helps. Regards,

What is the best software on Mac to detect wireless network?


The simplest wifi detection software is already in Mac OS and is pretty easy to use. Open your System Preferences via your dock and then open the network connections icon. Then open your airport control. Look for the check box to put Airport control in the menu bar. After that, you can simply open the screen of your macbook and the antenna bars will show you available signal and if you click on the antenna icon (top right corner of screen), you can select the name of the available network... Pretty cool and you already own it!
